After 3 tries, this will be the First Cars & Coffee of Spring/Summer, weather permitting. We’ll be there — will you?
We’re also taking the opportunity to take a short scenic drive to Columbia. Lois & Phil Matisak have scouted out some scenic backroads and a restaurant and country store recommended by locals — DooDads.
They’ll need an RSVP for lunch, so we can be sure they save us space. So, RSVP ASAP by Thursday, May 31, to COUNT ME IN FOR GOOD FOOD! We’ll gather after Cars & Coffee in the parking lot in front of Cool Spring Brewery, (600A Frazier Drive No.135, Franklin, TN 37067) where we usually lunch after Cars & Coffee.
You’re welcome to join the short drive (about 1.5 hrs) and lunch whether or not you attend Cars & Coffee. Just meet us in front of the brewery. Planned departure about 10:45 am. (If you RSVP but can’t make it, as a courtesy, please text or call Lois at 615-476-6291, so we aren’t waiting for you needlessly)
The Cool Springs Cars & Coffee gatherings are every Saturday at the Carmike theater parking area in Franklin…but the first Saturday of the month is when the “exotics” come out. As in past months, we will be showing our Miatas, however, it will depend on Harvey and what weather he will bring this weekend. If Harvey doesn’t show up on Saturday, Ray bouncing back from some issues will set up the booth and reserve spots for the show. So do come, give them a hand, talk cars, browse the assortment of hot rods, classics, and who knows what. Hope you can join us!
Anyone who wants to show their MIATA is welcome to do so, do let Ray know at firstname.lastname@example.org to save ya a spot. Time: 8 AM -10:30 AM or until the last vehicle leaves
Location: 633 Frazier Drive, Franklin which is the Carmike Thoroughbred 20 Theater. Our club booth will be located about: Do note the Franklin Police have closed the north entrance by McDonald’s for traffic control. Enter the lot via the south entrance.
Refreshment opportunities: McDonald’s is a few hundred yards from event or the Starbucks is across Cool Springs Blvd. (1/4 mile).
After the show, we’ll take a scenic drive on back roads toward Columbia. We’ll end up for lunch, tentatively at Doodad’s.
Housekeeping notes: Pick up your trash. Please leave the parking lot better than you found it or the gracious business owners will end this spontaneous gathering.
Driving onto and exiting the parking lot – PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY AND RESPONSIBLY! Please enter the parking lot slowly, drive through the parking lot slowly and exit the parking lot slowly. Once you have left the parking lot and are on Frasier Drive, continue to drive appropriately. If you feel the “need for speed” and to “throttle up”, please at least wait till you are a mile away from the parking lot before you do anything. We do not want that activity to be associated with the Cars and Coffee event. There are POLICE present! NO BURNOUTS!
